Zoning

Zoning By-laws are regulations governing land use that implement policies in the Town's Official Plan, and are regulated by Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13 in Ontario. 

Each provision and zone within the Zoning By-law has specific requirements that control the use of land and provide a legally enforceable way of managing land use and guiding future development.

The Zoning By-law regulates:

  • Land use
  • Building/structure location on a property
  • Building density, height, massing, type, and setbacks
  • Landscape and amenity area requirements
  • Lot size and dimension requirements
  • Parking and loading facilities
  • Specific use requirements (such as Cannabis Facilities, Bed and Breakfast, Accessory Structures, etc.)

In certain situations, the Zoning By-law also requires compliance with Minimum Distance Separation (MDS) Formulae which mitigates odour between agricultural and non-agricultural uses. 

Comprehensive Zoning By-law 2006-50, as amended, applies to all lands within the Town of Caledon with few exceptions (see Section 1.10).

Amending the Zoning By-law

Sometimes it's not possible to meet all of the Zoning By-law requirements. You can change your plans to meet the requirements, or apply for a preliminary meeting to discuss your proposal. If you can't meet the Zoning By-law you may need to apply for either a Zoning By-law Amendment or a Minor Variance application. 

Request a compliance letter

A compliance letter can be used for:

  • Written confirmation of the Official Plan designation and Zoning of a property
  • Establishing an Inspection Station
  • Establishing a Propane Cylinder Exchange program
  • Establishing a Day Nursery
  • Establishing a Before/After School Program

Request a compliance Letter.

Request a zoning certificate

You can apply to have your zoning reviewed (including uses and buildings/structures) to see whether it complies. A Zoning Certificate may be requested for any reason, including:

  • To have a zoning review done before you submit a planning application
  • For a proposed Motor Vehicles Sales (OMVIC)
  • For a proposed propane distribution centre
  • For a proposed day nursery

Request a Zoning Certificate Application.

Request a legal non-conforming use

A legal non-conforming use is a use which was legally established under the Zoning By-law in effect at the time the use began but which is not currently permitted. You can apply to have a use recognized as a legal non-conforming use so long as the original use has continued uninterrupted at that location until today.
